Paul McKenna Band
The best folk band to have come out of Scotland in the last twenty years New York Times
The best band of their generation (The Living Tradition)
A band with the potential to dominate the Scottish/Irish traditional scene for the next twenty years (Fatea Magazine)
Scotland's Paul McKenna has long been ranked among our finest younger singers and songwriters, armed with a powerful yet intensely emotive voice and passionate social conscience, often expressed through his songs, a combination that's brought frequent comparisons to the great Dick Gaughan.
He and his band comprising Robbie Greig (fiddle), Conal McDonagh (pipes/whistles), Conor Markey (banjo/bouzouki/guitars) and Ewan Baird (percussion) draw on both Scottish and Irish roots, in a dynamic, full-bodied array of original and traditional material, along with songs by like-minded authors including Peggy Seeger, Alistair Hulett and Jim Reid. Following 2016's tenth anniversary release Paths That Wind, they're currently at work on their fifth album.
